Getting To Know Hookworms

Photo by Steve Gullick plays a little word-tennis with Matthew Benn of Hookworms in the wake of their latest live release:

Hookworms are 5 dweebs, 1 chord, 0 vibes.

Our new record is shorter than the last one.

Our live shows are slowly ruining my hearing.

Our last gig was in Hebden Bridge – the most concentrated area of white people with dreadlocks in the whole world.

My favourite place to jam is between the toilet and the sink.

Outside of playing with Hookworms, I also love to cook.

The last dream I remember having was disturbed by my next-door neighbour’s new born baby.

The last book I read was Journey to the Centre of The Cramps.

A great gig I saw this year was Bitchin’ Bajas in Leeds.

Before the end of the year, I’d like to get all my Christmas shopping done.

In 2016, I’m going to try and avoid becoming part of the 27 Club.
